Samsung has developed a habit of comparing their latest devices with direct competitors using specification tables, and the Galaxy Tab 2 is no exception. The 7in wide tablet has been showcased by the company, as a better choice in the same price-region as the Kindle Fire and the Nook Tablet.
Three of these tables have now been composed and as the data shows, the Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 has twice the quantity of RAM than its competition, the same processor and a microSD slot that is found lacking in the Kindle Fire and Android 4.0. This is all while the other two media pads are stuck on Android 2.3 Gingerbread.
Samsung’s slate also comes with 2 cameras, Bluetooth connectivity, a built-in microphone and some other features that are completely missing from the Kindle Fire and the Nook Tablet.
Moreover, the Galaxy Tab comes with 50GB of free cloud storage from Dropbox (on a one year promotion) and support for various audio, image and video file types. It also has widgets, hardware volume buttons, a USB host feature, for connecting peripherals and a broad choice of music stores – unlike Amazon’s Kindle Fire.
The Tab’s main plus is the Google Play Store, the portal being replaced with Amazon’s App Store on the Kindle and with the Nook’s Apps Market, on the Barnes&Noble Tablet. Although both of these portals hold a decent range of apps, they are no match for Google’s creation.
Perhaps, Samsung’s main weakness is the lack of a media-friendly user interface, as compared to the ones found on the Nook Tablet and most of all, on the Kindle Fire.
